Despite the Changing Day
5000 people sat hungry while 12 miracle-seasoned disciples mired themselves in unbelief. A boy offered his 5 loaves and 2 fish with the faith they could help the situation. Bringing Fish has taken it's trajectory from this boy, knowing that everything we have has been gifted to us by God and should be returned to Him at every opportunity to be used as He sees fit. Each member of Bringing Fish had pursued music relentlessly and been pulled inescapably back to the truth that music was given us solely as a means to worship God. Their collective goal from the beginning has simply been to worship in such a genuine and transparent way that the presence and reality of God is unquestionable. A year after their inception, bf released their first full length album 'the bridge invisible', a disc aimed at showing people the beauty of Christ and their own beauty in light of His sacrifice for them. They sweated out their ardent message at city-wide festivals and youth gatherings across the prairies making the most of every opportunity they could find or create. Bf took their message to local theatres monthly, playing gigs for others to raise funds for their own events. These events culminated in the summer of 2001 when they rented one of North America's premier theatres, the Winspear centre and put on a week's worth of events outdoors on the Edmonton Legislature grounds during the world track and field championships. Bf's second full length recording 'despite the changing day' was released in the summer of 2003 revealing a definite gelling of the band's writing style as well as a further refinement of their musical and lyrical palettes. It was released just in time for the group to make the trip to Sioux Falls, SD to lead a week of worship for an international youth conference held every 3 years by the North American Baptist Conference. The members of Bringing Fish continue to distill scripture into songs that shine poetically and musically, writing and testing them weekly at their home church and abroad. Their hope is that they will constantly challenge others, and be challenged themselves, to offer what little we all have to be multiplied by the God who feeds the masses with a boy's lunch and moves mountains with faith the size of a mustard seed.
